BarreFloor is a non stop toning class performed on the mat and without the need for a ballet barre. It follows a specific structure, starting with the Warm Up and mobiliser section, followed by core strength exercises, which are performed in a variety of different positions, in a choreographed sequence. Finally a flowing stretch cool down sequence ends the class. Pilates principles are combined with fitness and ballet moves on the mat. The choreographed routine increases stamina to make for a fun and challenging workout.
This is similar to a full barre class but the exercises are done on the mat instead of standing up at the barre.
